The Chemistry of Food
By Carla Mooney
Illustrated by Traci Van Wagoner
Available September 2021 from Nomad Press!
Why does tomato sauce taste different from fresh tomatoes? Why does pasta go limp when you boil it? What makes ice cream melt? What better place to learn the fundamentals of chemistry than in the kitchen? In The Chemistry of Food, middle school readers learn the science behind the food they love as they explore the chemistry within the meal, how nutrition works, what creates flavor, and why texture is important.
